CAR TRACKDAY REGULATIONS
Acknowledgement of Risk
Motorsport is dangerous and can involve injury or death. Despite Spitfire Raceway taking all reasonable precautions, accidents can happen. By attending a track day, you acknowledge this and confirm that you are aware of the nature of the activity and attend at the venue at your own risk.
Spitfire Raceway may refuse access to, and eject from, its venue any persons who are acting against the interests of safety and/or whose behaviour is likely to cause damage, nuisance or injury.
Neither Spitfire Raceway or their representatives are responsible for any loss, damage or injury to persons or property caused or sustained by you as result of attendance at any track day.
All drivers must hold a Car Driving licence - fully unrestricted (not provisional) issued by the DVLA with the appropriate category clearly indicated.
All drivers and passengers must wear a suitable, correctly fitting crash helmet (not off road style motorcycle helmets) and have their legs covered at all times whilst on circuit. In the case of open top/soft top vehicles, drivers must wear full face helmets and also have arms covered at all times.
The vehicle you intend to use must conform to MOT minimum standards for road use. It must be in good condition both mechanically and bodily and suitable for its intended use on the track. All cars must have working seat belts/harness regardless of age and fit their towing eye in the front. It is your duty to ensure that the vehicle remains in this condition for the duration of the activity, in the interests of your safety and the safety of others at the circuit.
The vehicle you intend to use must conform to our noise regulations (98db).
If Spitfire Raceway is of the opinion that any vehicle does not comply with the applicable noise restrictions, the relevant vehicle will be prevented from participating in the remainder of the event unless and until the noise emissions are addressed to bring them within the applicable limit.
Accident Damage and Insurance
Spitfire Raceway do not require you to have insurance cover in place on its track days. However, whilst track day accidents are rare, by using your car on track you do so at your own risk. It is entirely your choice as to whether you procure insurance to cover damage to your vehicle. It is unlikely that your normal car insurance policy will cover you for a track day, but you should check with your insurer. If you explain that the track day is non-competitive, they may extend your cover for an additional charge. Alternatively there are specialist insurance companies who provide track day insurance.
